Dear Family and Friends, I have been thinking a lot about Cliff and how I had not heard from him in a while. I tried to call him and got his voice mail. Now, I know why. Cliff was a special person. He was married to my mother for a short while and through her I got to know him as a very nice man and how very special of an individual he was. He made my mother happy. I have very fond memories of him and remember his distinctive voice well. God bless you all and that He is with you during this difficult time. Vickie Cox

We cannot begin to extend our sympathy and prayers to all of you, without remembering all the good times and laughs we had together. Your Dad and Mom were very special people, but we do not have to tell any of you that. In the days ahead we will place your names before the Lord for peace, strength and courage. He was a great person, Father, Grandfather and Christian. That is alot to be proud of. Love all of you.

We are so sorry to hear that your Dad Art has passed away. He & your Mother Trudy was wonderful folks. We enjoyed their company so much when we were all going to church together years ago and also loved the personal time that we spent with them. We now live in Alabama but talked to Art on the phone when we moved our church letter here.
We have wonderful memories of you all when Ed & I was over the Youth at Church and we all set around the camp fire singing with Mike B. playing his guitar.
